The aim of this fellowship is to increase the Nordic cooperation.
The Nordic Fellowship 2016 has been awarded to dr. Hanna Sartor from Sweden and dr. Ditte Dencker from Denmark. There were a number of applications this year and those that were not successful this year are encouraged to apply for the fellowship next time it will be awarded, which will be early in 2018. The applications should be send directly to the boards of the national societies which will then forward their top two candidates to the board of the NSMR for review at the annual board meeting at the European Congress of Radiology in March 2018.
The Board of the Nordic Society of Medical Radiology (NSMR) can decide to award Nordic fellowship (resestipendium).
The number of fellowships and amount to be awarded is to be decided by the Board.
Fellowships are awarded in the year in between the Nordic Congresses to promote collaboration between the Nordic countries. Fellowships are to be given to residents in radiology to support a stay at a radiology department in another Nordic country. A membership of a national society is required.
The national societies are invited to suggest up to two candidates for the fellowships. If two are suggested, a prioritized list should be given.
Applications (Scandinavian language or English) from the national societies must be sent to the secretary of the NFMR before February 1st in even years (non-congress years). The decision of who are to be awarded the grants will be decided at the board meeting in March. The secretary of the NSMR will notify the applicants before April 1st. The grant is to be used within 12 months.
A report from each grant recipient must be sent to the secretary of NFMR within two months after the visit and may be published on the website or in national newsletters.
Every year when there is no Nordic Radiological Congress, the Nordic Society of Medical Radiology announces a grant to be given to a Nordic research or educational project. At least two Nordic countries must be involved in the project. Applications with a short description of the project may be sent to the General Secretary of the Nordic Society:
